Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Another Side of Jerry

This is a song by Ralph Stanley that Old And in the Way performed in '73. I heard it for the first time tonight. Still finding gems 17 years later. Thank-you Jerry.

Amazing sound quality here.

Down Where the River Bends

Hard to keep the tear out of my eyes.
For this might be our last goodbye.
Your country calls you to defend a great land,
So do your part just like a man.

Down where the river bends,
With God's help we'll meet again.
Under the same old sycamore tree,
Proud of each other in the land of the free.

I'll go down to the ocean blue
And get just as close as I can to you
Though the ocean may keep us apart
It won't keep you dear from out of my heart.

Down where the river bends
With God's help we'll meet again
Under the same old sycamore tree
Proud of each other in the land of the free.

If the worst should happen, and the poppies should wave
Over your far distant lonely grave
All the rest of my life I'll spend in prayer
I'll meet you in heaven, there'll be no wars there

Down where the river bends
With God's help we'll meet again
Under the same old sycamore tree
Proud of each other in the land of the free...

Not your stereotypical song when you think of Jerry and yet another reason I love 'em. I have a feeling Vassar Clements brought this one in, but that's a guess. I think b/c of the poppies reference the song is referencing WW1.

If you've never heard DWTRB then you may be interested in 'Bluegrass Reunion,' a Grisman effort from some years back where he rounded up an impressive lineup of players for a host of classics. 'River Bends' is on there. Jerry was involved but only on- I believe- Ashes of Love and 'The Fields Have Turned Brown.'
(Talk about gems- TFHTB ...omg.)

There's some short clips on YouTube (incomplete songs) where Grisman appears to have actually taken the lineup (sans Jerry naturally) out for some live performances.

The power of Film .... and it's influence on Hunter/Garcia

1972 Deliverance > Old and in the Way

1972 Godfather > Virgil Sollozzo to Tom Hagen "he's gone Tom, and nothin can bring him back"


Hunter/ John Kahn

1957 Love In The Afternoon > a sleepy mid-day view of Billy Wilders classic ?

Interesting. Is this pure speculation, or do you have any evidence to support this?

And what the hell does Jennifer Lopez have to do with all this? Please replace her with this:

Dog,

That's disgusting! Skobud @ Snow_and_Rain aren't your role models, but then again those two handles are one-in-the-same!

I thought we appointed the Bluedevil as your Pro tempore "role model", yes?

One can only imagine the long lasting smile that a three hour romp with JLO would bring to the face!

Lovely in the afternoon.

Sure. Jerry, Vassar, Peter Rowan.. they didn't know a thing about bluegrass until Deliverance. That's why none of them played bluegrass until that film came out. And you thought He's Gone was about Lenny Hart, right? WRONG! Rob has pulled back the veil again, revealing a previously-unknown line from the Godfather as Hunter's source material. Even though you won't find it in any circulating scripts of that movie, you can rest assured -- as sure as he was taping shows while he was in grade school -- that his word is gold. Take it to the bank. But I'm sure those tapes will emerge someday. Right Rob?

“deniro, please keep in mind that you're dealing with a

Oh, I know. I am honestly just curious if there is any basis to his statements about Jerry and Hunter being so influenced by films. Idk why Jerry's ass is red, but he looks pretty sad about it.

Been listening to this one in the car lately, and the intensity of this show continually amazes me:
http://archive.org/details/gd1969-02-15.sbd.goodbear.2175.sbeok.shnf

The whole show rips hard. A dark, intense Other One. One of my favorites of the year actually, in a year full of amazing versions. An incredible Dew, check out Jerry's solo. Lovelight continues the onslaught of intensity. Dark Star will bend your mind, and Mountains of the Moon will tingle your spine! Alligator is a strong version, and don't forget to save some chairs to break for the Caution!

Sadly, there are some cuts in The Eleven, and Death Don't Have No Mercy that really disrupt the show, but otherwise, this has some of the most top-notch playing of early '69.

Old one-eyed lil smokie squint. I wonder what the American
Indians translation would be to that one?? hmmm

Thanks for the reminder of that 69 show. The shows around
it tend to overshadow it, so Im glad you showed me places
in the strangest of light. I almost forgot about the 2-15.
THE Am Dew is incredible as you say. LOVE the MOTM. And
yes, Im glad to hear that D star. wheeee- whewwwwwwwww!
Saint Stephen? forrgettabouttttiiitt.....

The cuts are deep in this recording, but that rarely
bothers me. Jerrys voice is so ALIVE! And the playing...
oh, the playing... No wonder the 'earlier is better' crew
lives for this and this only. This show is proof.

btw~ 'The Blushing Asses' is gonna be the name of my next
band. I shall send you royalties :P

Hah. In my current state of mind, it sounds like a great idea. The Red Hot Chili Peppers used to rock out with their cocks out, but your band can be the first to expose just the buttocks! I'm certain this would draw a crowd (maybe not the crowd you're looking for though). You all need to paint your asses red, and then get pants that have a butt flap. Wait till the encore, then turn your backs towards the audience and unveil a row of lustrous red cheeks. You'll need a revolving drum kit so you can play with your ass to the crowd :-) I can just imagine ya grabbing the mic, bending over, and shouting “The sun will shine in my backdoor someday!”

Oh, and yes 2/15/69 is outstanding. Gets somewhat lost amidst of sea of great '69 shows. Jerry's fingers had some extra magic in them that night. I'd love to see an official release of a show like that, which doesn't already have a pristine sbd in circulation. There's no incentive for me, and many others, to purchase shows which I already have near-perfect sounding copies of.

Unfortunately, you are the only one concerned about honesty and truth in this matter de.

"Idk why Jerry's ass is red, but he looks pretty sad about it."
~ I think it looks like he is ripping one of those farts that make you feel so good that you find yourself saying out loud, " gaaaoooddamnn, that felt good."
Hence the one-eyed squint. (no porno references plz)
Thats just my take one it.

2-15-69? Off it is then. Thx!

Lol. Your take makes a lot of sense, but it still don't explain his rosy red butt cheeks. Maybe his ass is blushing.

One-eyed squint? Isn't that another one of Rich's nicknames? I thought he went by One-eyed Squint before Lil Smokie popped up.

Mostly speculative Deniro, i have no idea what was going on in Hunters mind in the early 70s other than his lyrical musings, but art does influence art, and artist's draw from everything in the universe.

I worked at the local book/record store in high school and Deliverance definitely increased the genre awareness of Bluegrass music, nowhere near the big seller that Neil Diamonds Jonathan Livingston Seagull was to the middle-age female clientele, however. I was eager to learn the guitar parts to the films theme song.

Garcias last performance with the New Riders was August of 1971 and he just might have caught the banjo bug again from Deliverance. Most every American film enthusiast saw both Godfather & Deliverance in 1972. Godfather opening weekend was March 24th and He's Gone first live performance was April 17th. So the timelines could probably work.

Old & In The Way first performed live March 2nd, 1973. Wake of the Flood was definitely a push into the world of Vassar Clements in 1973 for many of us.

Being a film enthusiast, on several occasions, while listening to the various actors dialogue have been reminded of songs that contained those lines as lyrics.

Oh and BTW, here's the evidence you’ve been searching for, i responded to Skobuds handle in the thread, that must be absolute proof beyond a reasonable doubt for any sane person, yes!

:-) :–-) :---)
